This is going to be a disaster if more passengers contact this virus. Strange that no crew members have contacted this virus since they have direct contact with cruise passengers and that they are allow to go ashore and visit local cruise ports.

Wow, 135 cases. It's just going to continue to grow. There have been viruses before we were born (I am 64) that killed a lot of people. I hope this is not going to get out of hand before they stop it with a vaccination or a cure of some kind.

This ship is increasingly looking like an incubator of the virus. Nobody seems to be telling the affected people anything different than the quarantine lasting until the 19th. My take, however is that they want to see no new cases found for 14 days before they get to disembark. That date seems in jeopardy. Fingers, toes and eyes crossed for an effective treatment and/or vaccine.

I heard on the news that it's going to take 18 months to have a vaccine for it.:oops:

This is a total mess IMO. The number of new cases can only go up, this is a
quarantined ship with no outlets, no release or outside medical health help.

There were 44 new cases confirmed yesterday. One was a crew member.
Simple question how many crew members and passengers did this one crew member come in contact wiith in the past/last fourteen (14) days ???

The lucky passengers are the ones, that have been taken off this cruise ship and
are receiving the proper medical care in a hospital. IMHO

I am praying that all crew members are washing their clothes and food utensils twice daily to keep this coronavirus down.

Question: How are passengers disinfectant their cabins and washing their clothes Daily.

The Japanese government gave 2,000 iphones to passengers stuck on a cruise ship where nearly 200
coronavirus cases have been confirmed.

I hope Carnival Cruise Lines will also, give IPHONE to officers and crew members of this ship.

They are stuck unless their Home country arranges flights. Also I think every time a new case of Coronavirus shows up on the ship the quarantine gets extended. They might be there forever.
